Reducing Risk in the Games Business

Video game related consumer spending is estimated to reach $112 billion by 2015 (Gartner). This is a high reward for the key “players” involved in the industry. But, with these rewards come high risks. Our industry is full of them! With the market changing faster than ever, leaders need to make sound decisions.

But, how do you manage that risk and even reduce it? This panel of game industry veterans will discuss their approach to business strategy and explain what is different about how they are doing business to help manage risk.

Moderated by Walter Somol, Director of Tech Community Outreach at Microsoft New England Research & Development Center, the panel will include Scott Triola, Founder & Principal of 5X5 Advisors and former COO of Blue Fang Games; Dave McCool, President & CEO of Muzzy Lane Software; Nabeel Hyatt, General Manager of Zynga Boston; and other industry executives.
